Nearly 4 out of 5 unintentional poisoning deaths in Oklahoma are a result of prescription drug abuse. Prescription drug abuse is Oklahoma’s fastest growing drug abuse issue.
DCCCA is the grant recipient for the prevention of non-medical use of prescription medicine in people ages 12-25 in Oklahoma County funded by ODMHSAS, SAMHSA, and CSAP.
In partnership with our coalition Substance Use Prevention Alliance (SUPA), DCCCA has worked diligently to create relationships with local schools, colleges, and other youth organizations. We also work with community members to decrease Oklahoma County’s prescription drug epidemic through education, awareness, and other prevention activities.
